Is the birth
Of something new
The temple was shut, and when we investigated, we discovered the temple would be open only after the funeral was done with[the death we saw down the road]… Knowing we had nearly an hour, we took a trip to another temple nearby –Thirumalpadi…
We returned once the priest gave us the Green signal and spent some time wandering the interiors of the temple in Seeyamangalam. On one of the pillars inside, we were shown Shiva in the Ananda Thandava posture, which is one of the early interpretations. On the other side was a carving of Shiva Parvathi on Rishaba[bull]. The priest told us we were free to take photographs inside…
A few steps from the main temple is a small temple atop
a rock decidated to Lord Muruga. There were steps carved out of the
rock, going 3/4th of the way. We decided to give it a pass after attempting the 1st few steps… The temple premises was huge, opening out to empty land and the blue skies.
After an hour or so, as we walked towards the car, we wondered what other stories were hidden within these walls.

Oh, and we werent done yet… We wanted to go all the way and have ourselves one hearty meal. For dessert, we just stuck to Chocolate Canaloni, that was served on a long white plate with a few slices of orange on one side, and two rolls, one hazelnut flavoured and other dark chocolate with rich cholocate filling on the inside.. It was to die for… divine!!
Good conversation, amazing company and good food, all that made the evening quite a memorable one!We were on a high and so the night will remain a fun experience…
It was one & half hours of beautiful soulful music.. Each piece was unique, and it was a different kind of an experience… There was a piece they performed called “Sangamam” [which literally translates to Confluence, coming together] that had been composed by Prabhu….
There was this one piece composed by Mieko which she narrated as a story…
Here is one of the pieces they performed- Sweet Ganesha….
The Edouard Michelin Auditorium is a fairly small one, but i have seen it go through transformation over the years, now there is Air conditioning, nice plush seats have replaced plastic chairs and the ramp outside replaced with stairs, a nice door and an overall good feel.
